NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) - Uber and Mercedes-Benz have teamed up for a contest offering Saints fans the chance to win tickets to the game this season and free rides to and from the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

Starting Sunday, local riders who open the Uber app and use the promo code “MBDRIVESNOLA” before kickoff will be eligible to win tickets and transportation to the game. Every home game throughout the season, 25 fans who select limited Mercedes-Benz vehicles will receive a Saints prize package, including two game tickets.

“Saints fans are some of the most passionate in football,” said Monique Harrison, department head for brand experience marketing at Mercedes-Benz USA. “We share this enthusiasm with the city of New Orleans and are excited about elevating the experience for a lucky group of fans, including a ride to the game in a Mercedes-Benz.”

Winners will be picked up in custom New Orleans Saints 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLS SUVs. Fans will ride to the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in style in the luxurious GLS, and they will also receive a promo code for pickup after the game.

New Orleans Saints wide receiver Brandin Cooks has even signed on to the promotion to let people know about the free rides and tickets to be had.
